June 2011 Release Day 1: Pile It On

Hey, hey! We are back, and back on schedule! And it's that time again...release time! This month we have 1 new stamp set and a coordinating die to introduce (more on this tomorrow). Let's get started!

Over the next couple of days, we will be giving you some sneak peeks of this super fun birthday set. This set is packed with celebration possibilities! But don't let it limit you to birthday use, there are also some fun sentiments for everyday use thrown in as well.

Pile It On
  • is a 6x8 clear photopolymer stamp set
  • contains 25 stamps; 14 images and 11 sentiment and 1 journaling line
  • will be available for purchase June 1st for just $19

Today's card is a fun, bright and cheerful birthday card that mixes a couple of older sets in as well.

I started this card by creating some background paper using the circle image from Funky Flowers in red, green, and yellow. Building my focal image was a piece of cake (pun intended!).

I started by stamping the tiered cake image in red. The "cake stand" was actually created using Filigreed Frames.

I stamped the shelf-like flourish image first as the base. Then I added the corner flourish image directly beneath it to create the feet of the stand. How cool is that?!

To add the scallops to each layer of the cake, I used one of the 3 decorative elements included in the set. I stamped it in Versmark and then heat embossed it in white. I've also include a cute little ribbon and bow stamp in the set. This allows the tiered cake image to double as a stack of presents!

I finished the card off with a little candle and the "Make a Wish" sentiment, both included in the set. I just love how cheerful this card is. And perfect for all ages too.

Now, I also wanted to give you guys a little peek at a new digital set that I added to the store earlier this month, Izzy.

Oh my goodness, I just love that little pup! I printed it out onto white cardstock and colored her in with Copics. I then trimmed her out and adhered her directly to a white circle.

So there you have Day 1. Since we have a small release this month, I will be selecting 3 random winners from all posts during the release to win Pile It On and the coordinating die. Leave me a comment by 11:59 PM EST May 31st. Want more chances to win?

  31. I've never liked the idea of buying a birthday cake stamp (even though everyone celebrate birthdays so it should be highly used), because I find birthday cake stamps very 'boring', in the sense that it looks the same, and I can't possibly have the same cake on my cards every year and for everyone! SO, I really love it how you've thought of that and gave us the opportunity to 'turn' the cakes into gift boxes! Very very ingenious :)
